just a thought.

we have this beautiful gift called life. constantly taking it for granted in ways that often do not make sense. wasting it on trivial things. we walk around as if we are guranteed tomorrow, when in reality we are not granted another second without the LORD giving it to us. so then, why is that we cannot see our life as the beautiful gift that it is? why can we not take these moments that we are honored to have and use it to glorify the LORD... not ourselves? why is it often difficult to simply say i love the God because He is the LORD and not because of what He is able to do for us? life should only have one goal in mind... the LORD himself. be honest with yourself... is that your goal?

i loved this post summer! since i've been having a few health issues lately my mind has been very much on this subject...oh how much more precious each day has been because of thinking "this could be my last". it makes each day seem so much more of a gift rather than a regular occurance. god is so good, and you are right, He is Lord!

I agree with Kate. Lately I've been having some weird aches and pains and thinking about my classmates who have died in the last couple of years. They were my age and younger and we aren't guaranteed to live till 80 or 90. A couple of them did have health problems, but nothing they couldn't turn around. That's where I am right now - I need to turn my health around and lose the weight I'm putting on my knees (the right knee hurts so much right now). But more important, I need to thank the Lord for each day He gives me and show Him how much I appreciate the days He gives me. Your post is such a good reminder. Thanks, Summer.
